Just wanted to say Hi!
I’m following Funkwhale since some time now and I think it’s time to start with a bit more then just consuming. As I’m anything but not a coder, I’ve figured out some other ways to help: translation, bug reporting, being active here in the forums, and some sponsoring.
I came to Funkwhale via https://www.reddit.com/r/selfhosted/comments/99xltv/ampache_vs_funkwhale/ and mainly https://github.com/Kickball/awesome-selfhosted#audio-streaming in search for a “better” media player.
I’m fiddling around with Linux and co since the mid 90s and tried to be part of the Open Source thing since the very beginning. As my brain seems not to be made for things like coding altogether, I tend to be lost somehow, but found other ways contributing.
I am an active user of Freenas since quite some time now.
What I like with Funkwhale is the way this little community is trying to find their way, building things up etc. The social / community thing, you know. A nice example is the ongoing finding phase for a Code of Conduct, which is a pretty important thing, I think. Things like this depresses me deeply.
